From a humble property manager in suburban Perth over 20 years ago to an awarded industry influencer and thought leader working with international real estate companies, I am truly grateful for where my career has taken me. By continually planning, risking, investing, discovering and believing in yourself, you too can achieve this same success. To take your property management career to the next level, here are five steps I have used from the start of my career and continue to use today.

1. Plan – Map your vision

Having a future vision is essential if you want to take your property management career to the next level. Take the time to map out what your ideal career looks like. This plan should include your desired career milestones, timelines for achieving them, professional development budget, industry awards you want to work towards, and any events you want to attend or perhaps even present at. Look within and write a career plan that takes you from where you are today, to where you want to be tomorrow, and where you ultimately want to end up 20 years from now.
